MMA World Says Goodbye to Tyrone Mims


Tyrone Mims Memorial FundTyrone “Teestea” Mims departed this world tragically last Friday after making his amateur mixed martial arts debut in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. at Conflict MMA’s “Fight Night at the Point 6.”

Mims collapsed following his bout and was taken to the hospital before being pronounced dead.

The 30-year-old aspiring mixed martial artist left behind his mother, Barbara, and his father, Thomas, along with five children.

Mims was a born fighter with a troubled past, but he began to turn his life around for the better when he found MMA. Trainer Chris Hauser knew that he had something special once Mims entered the building at the Augusta Fight Club down in Georgia and helped to cultivate his skills.

Those that knew Mims describe him as a passionate and fearless man who had finally found what he wanted to do in life.  While his life ended tragically, he died a happy man who had found his calling.

Conflict MMA Promotions is planning a special memorial for Mims at its next event in December “with permission and participation of his family.” The promotion is setting up a memorial trust fund for Mims’ children and will dedicate a title belt to his name.
